Program Information 
The Rapid Access  Transient ischemic attack (TIA) and Stroke Secondary Prevention Clinic provides rapid assessment by a Nurse Practitioner (NP) of patients who have experienced transient stroke-like symptoms who present to the emergency department or in the primary health care setting.

This clinic aims to rapidly identify patients who have experienced a TIA, and streamline patients with critical stenosis of the carotid arteries to surgical evaluation to reduce the risk of stroke. Patients will receive a neurologic examination by the Nurse Practitioner.

The TIA clinic will also  arrange diagnostic tests, if not already completed, such as carotid dopplers, CT scan of the head, ECG and holter monitoring and echocardiography if necessary to identify the underlying cause of their clinical presentation and treat any risk factors that could place the patient at risk of stroke.
